November 2009 Member/Car of the month: bamaproshop!
Congratulations Bama for being the second Member/Car of the month here on ModernCamaro.com!
Thank you all it is an honor
Ok letís get started with a few questions.
What got you started with your love for the Camaro?
It started back in high school one of my bowling coaches had a 69 Camaro and I thought that was just the coolest looking car I have ever seen. I even got to drive it a couple of times after I got my license and it was the same perma grin back then as there is now.
Whatís the story behind your 5th gen?
After the first time I saw the new Camaro I knew I wanted it. I went down and put my deposit down and then the wait started. I almost didn't get my Camaro because when I went to get pre-approved my bank turned me down, I got so depressed I tried to cancel my order the salesman kept telling he could get me financed, I told him never mind just cancel my order (thank goodness he didn't listen to me). I stopped by the dealership one day to see if the have received their demo Camaro yet, but no luck. I was about to leave when my salesman said trust me I can get you financed. I said yeah right go ahead and try so I filled out the credit application he got on the phone when he hung up he said he was talking to the president of the bank and he didn't see any problem with financing me. So we did all the other paperwork and then he tells me my Camaro should be he tomorrow (I didn't sleep a wink that night). I get a call the next day telling me my Camaro is in. I went in and signed all the paper and was the happiest man in Montgomery, Alabama.
How did you come across ModernCamaro.com and what made you stick around?
I just googled Camaro forums and it was the first one that showed after reading a few posts I joined up. I stuck around because I feel welcome here all the time. It's like one big family.
Finally do you have anything youíd like to say to ModernCamaro.com members or anyone else reading this interview?
I just want to say that thank you all for being part of my life now. It's nice to be able to have a place to go when you need help cause there is always people on here willing to do whatever it takes to help out. I hope to get to meet some of you one day in person. Thank you once again for making me member/car of the month.
